HTTP DELETE

Deletes the file attachment.

This will remove the file attachment from the draft review request. This cannot be undone.

Deleting a file attachment will automatically create a new review request draft, if one doesn’t already exist. The attachment won’t be actually removed until the review request draft is published.

This can be used to remove old file attachments that were previously shown, as well as newly added file attachments that were part of the draft.

Instead of a payload response on success, this will return HTTP 204 No Content.
